I joined politics because of unemployment, not to solve Nigeria’s problems- Transport Minister, Rotimi Amaechi

The Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amarachi said in an interview that his only drive for being in politics is to keep himself employed and not to solve the inadequacies of the Ministry he has been appointed to head!

He says:

“I didn’t join politics because I wanted to be a leader or because I wanted to solve Nigeria’s problems. I joined because of unemployment. I also believe there is a part that grace played in it,” the media quoted the minister as saying in an interview.

Amaechi has been Nigeria’s minister of transportation since 2015.

During the interview, Mr Amaechi also lamented the poor representation of the people by political officeholders, saying the poor have never been properly represented by the government whether it is the current administration, which he is part of, or the ones before it.
